National Vice President, 3848 S. Farm Road 93, Republic, Missouri 65738

As you read this the 1996 show season will be well underway. Just a reminder to make safety everyone's concern at our shows. The National has guidelines for safety and if you do not have a copy, see your local officers for one.

My local Branch #16 held our annual swap meet April 13 and 14. We had good weather and a good turn out. A lot of iron exchanged hands. We had several branches of EDGE&TA represented, with Branch #43 from Granbury, Texas, being the farthest away.

As the National continues to grow, we would like to welcome Branches #71 and #72 into the National. Branch #71Art Hultman, President, 1457 Loomis, Wheatland, Wyoming 82201; Branch #72Donald W. Layton, President, PO Box 16, Riverton, Wyoming 82501.

We are looking forward to the Regional Meet with Branch #35 June 8-9,1996, in Chesapeake, Virginia. Hope to see many of you there.
